Fitness

Fitness is probably one of the most important determiners of a person's general well-being. Students are introduced to both new and traditional ways to stay active and fit, learning skills that will stay with them for a lifetime. Our fitness classes embrace the whole student, helping each student develop and maintain healthy habits which will improve their immune systems, give them more energy, and help create a positive outlook on life.
Beginning Fencing 8+ #Gym
Teacher: Kim Miller
Outside Work: Minimal
Ages: 8 and up
1.25 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $25.00
Students are taught to focus on the joy of self- improvement and to "forget
about winning". They learn to appreciate the contribution of others, value
what they have to offer, how to enjoy the process of self-improvement, and
get a great work-out as well! Students also learn how to deal with
frustration, control anger and remain cool under pressure. Fencing improves
hand-eye coordination, balance, timing, strength, and reflex management. But
the best part is... it's a lot of fun!

This class is structured to give someone who has never fenced before a good
idea of what the sport is about and is intended to familiarize the student
with the equipment and the basics of the sport.

Students will be required to purchase their own fencing equipment. Details
and assistance will be provided by the instructor at the beginning of the
year.
